The Art of Cecilia Levy
This Swedish artist uses books from the beginning of last century, takes them apart, shreds or cuts them and puts them back together again in a new format. The pieces are re-assembled into unique objects, eggshell thin, ensuring the stories live on but in a different way.
Originally a graphic designer and bookbinder Cecilia now works full-time as an independent artist, participating in both solo and group exhibitions in Sweden and abroad.
Her three-dimensional experimentation with paper started in 2009 and she now produces a wide range of objects including plant forms, cups, plates, bowls, crockery place settings, boots & shoes, birds nests & eggs and much more.
It may sound sacrilegious to book-lovers, but her work is in fact a loving testament to literature.
